Better Homes & Gardens Test Garden Pond Renovated

Smartpond® has joined together with Meredith Corporation to provide the supplies necessary to renovate and enlarge the Better Homes & Gardens Test Garden® pond at the magazine’s headquarters in Des Moines, IA. Utilizing Smartpond’s pro-grade underlayment, lining, weir, skimmer, 2˝ tubing and a 5100 GPH pump – the 1500+ gallon pond now features a 20 foot stream and spans over 15 feet. Ease of maintenance was paramount to the Test Garden Manager. The large skimmer box where the pump is housed features components that make cleaning and overall maintenance simple. The installation took place October 4-11, 2010 with a Smartpond product engineer on-hand to oversee the process. Ornamental plants and fish life will be added. Stay tuned for the beauty shots forthcoming in 2011!
